Of the fight there is little to telU John
son in the first two rounds looked like
an easy winner. He thought he had an
easy mark In Hart, and thought he could,
as he has always in his fights, loop along
and win on points. There was a surprise
in Btcre for the negro and for the crowd
also. For Hart began wading into' the big
piece of dark meat in front of him.
After Hart started he never let up.
Throughout the whole 20 rounds he was
on top of Johnson. First he would poke
his left into Johnson's face and then he
would whip his right to the stomach.
Only once or twice did Johnson assume
the aggressive. When he did he would
smother Hart with .wallops and jabs.
"But it never lasted long. Hart, who
is clumsily clever, would cover up and
get out of trouble. Hart Is the first
fighter that this negro champion has met.

HHART DID ALL THE FORCING
That Is Why Greggains Give Him
WOODWARD'S PAVILION, San Fran
cisco. March 2S-Marvin Hart was award
ed the decision over Jack Johnson in a
20-round contest tonight that went the
limit, but ho was far from demonstrating
that he had qualified to meet Jim Jeffries.
Hart was as badly punished, a man as
has lateen seen in tho ring for a long time,
but he was game to tho core, and kept
Coring into the big colored man all during
Johnson's much-vaunted cleverness did
not count for much. While be w&3 able
to hit Hart frequently, his blows did not
seem to damage the white man from Ken
tucky. The sympathies of the large crowd
present were openly with Hart, who was
the abort-ender in tho betting, and every
lead he made at Johnson, whether he
landed or not, was greeted with yells of

Referee Greggains stated that he gave
tho decision to Hart because all through
tho fight Hart did all tho forcing and
leading. According to Greggains, If Hart
had not pursued his tactics, there would
have been no fight, as Johnson merely
contented himself with countering. Hart's
face was battered to a pulp, but John-
son's- blows did 'not seem to have much
sting to them. Johnson. did a great deal
of uppercutting. but Hart covered up,
and the blows did not seem to hurt him.
The general opinion of those who wit
nessed the fight was that neither man
would stand any chance with Jeffries.
The champion would probably beat them
both in the some night.
Jabez White, who arrived yesterday
from England to fight Jimmy Brltt. was
introduced prior to the main event.
Battling Nelson also appeared, and said
that he would fight Brltt at .any time.
Britt did not appear, and it was stated
that he was in the country.
BRITT AND WHITE MATCHED
Weight Is Fixed at 133 Pounds and
Date Is April 25.
SAN FRANCISCO. Cal.. March 21
(Special.) Jabez White and Jimmy Brltt
were formally matched this afternoon to
fight for the lightweight championship,
nominally held by Joe Gans, of Balti
more. They will meet April 25 In Me
chanics' Pavilion. White and Britt met
for the first time at the conference.
The club gives them SO per cent of the
gross receipts. Mitchell, acting for
White, thought CO and 40 was a fair pro
portion, and Britt at once agreed to it.
On a $40,000 house, which the fight is ex-
pected to draw, the winner will receive
J12.0W and the loser 59000. In addition to
this, Britt will receive a bonus, which
usually amounts to about $3000.
The weight was fixed at 123. The
Queensberry rules were agreed upon. It
was decided to select the referee 12 days
before the fight.
The question of bandages was the last
detail decided upon. Mitchell wanted no
bandages, possibly thinking White's small,
bony hands would do greater execution
without them. Brltt said, he was accus
tomed to using bandages. It was finally
agreed that soft surgical bandages be
used. They are to come from the same
roll and are to be adjusted in the ring".

KDNKLE. TAX BU REX S CHEAPLY
ARE WORTH SEEING
Shippers Want Transports
Here During Fair.
WOULD INTEREST VISITORS
Large Fleet Is Lying Idle at San
Francisco, and Some of Vessels
Might Be Brought Here With
out Cost to Government.
The shipping men of the city have begun
an agitation of the subject of having sev
eral army transports hero during the
Fair. The matter ha3 been talked over on
the water front since the arrival of the
Buford. It is believed that if the proper
representations were made to the War De
partment, an order would be Issued, for
stationing several of the steamers here
this Summer. There are always several
transports lying idle at San Francisco,
and they would be under no more expense
here than there.
A great many people are waiting pa
tiently for the Buford to move to Green
wich dock, so they can make a closer In
spection of her. To many landsmen, an
army transport is more Interesting than a
warship. It Is a fact that when a cruiser
or gunboat has been thrown open to the
publlo here, the majority of visitors- have
taken more interest in the sleeping, liv
ing and eating quarters of the men than
in the big guns or machinery. On a mod
ern transport, the first consideration is
the comfort and accommodation of the
soldiers. On the Buford, which will carry
about 1000 men, these details are arranged
on a scientific plan, and the troopers are
better cared for than are the passengers
on many a commercial liner. The other
transports in service on the Pacific are
equally well arranged.
Six transports are now Iyinr disengaged
in San Francisco Bay, and thiee more aa
on the way to the Coast from the Philip
pines. Those Idle at San Francisco are
the Warren, Crook. Meade, Solace, Dlx
and Thomas. The Sherman is on the way
across from Manila, the Logan la proceed
ing eastward from Honolulu, and the
Sheridan is en route to this city from the
Philippines, via Nagasaki. The last named
steamer Is due here April 20, and It Is be
lieved that if a request were made to
Washington, her stay here could be pro
longed for several months, after which
her place in this 'harbor might be taken
by another of the transports. The cost of
maintaining the vessels here would be
practically the same as at San Francisco,
and they would have the further advan
tage of lying in fresh water, while, if re
quired for active service, no time would
be lost in getting them to San Francisco.
The officers and men of the Buford are
in hopes that they will be ordered here on
their return from Manila, as they would
much prefer spending the Summer in
Portland than at San Francisco or Mare
Island. The presence of such a craft in
the river during the Fair would add to the
attractions of the event, and could prob
ably be brought about by some of the
commercial bodies here making the re
quest of the War Department.
TWICE STOPPED BY JAPANESE
British Steamer Ocean Monarch Has
Encounters With Cruisers.
SEATTLE, March 28. Japanese
cruisers twice stopped and boarded the
British tramp steamer Ocean Monarch,
which arrived here today, 26 days out,
while she was in the Japan Sea, on her
voyage to this port from Kobe. On
both occasions the Monarch was in
formed of the cruiser's desires by a
shot fired across her bow.
The first encounter occurred during
one afternoon, the cruiser sighting the
Monarch from a considerable distance
and overhauling her rapidly. The sec
ond time was at night, tho Monarch's
first warning that a cruiser was near
being when she found herself in the
glare of a searchlight, a -shot across
her bows following immediately.
The Monarch had no cargo, being in
ballast on her trip over and, after ex
amlning the vessel and her papers, the
boarding officers allowed her to pro
ceed. Her officers report a rough voy
age nearly all the way over. They say
the coast of Northern Japan and Si
beria Is so thoroughly guarded that it
would be impossible to make a success
ful attempt at blockade-running.
